How well can the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB run games
AMD Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 749 games in the list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a reasonable frame rate from Days Gone with 58 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Forza Horizon 5 which returns a reasonable 51 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Dying Light 2 which we saw getting a playable 39 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Days Gone and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 116 FPS, Medium: 91 FPS, High: 61 FPS and Ultra: 44 FPS. We then checked the performance on Forza Horizon 5 to see if that runs well. It was playable with a 39 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB, this is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB.

Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Fiji is a Second Generation GCN GPU. It offers support for HBM-1 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Open GL 4.5 and the acclaimed Delta Compression Algorithm which may decrease bandwidth consumption by up to 30%, in most games.
Fiji XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-1 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, and because the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, 4GB might be a bottlenecked and Performance could be better, were the Frame Buffer larger.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB competes with GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB and both are available for $649.
Benchmarks However Indicate that GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is still faster than Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB, even at 4K, whereas as the resolution goes down, the performance gap between the latter and GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB increases and at 1600x900, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is only as fast as the weaker GeForce GTX 980.
Considering Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB offers practically no overclock potential (operating memory clock can't even be increased), consumes slightly more energy than GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB, costs the same price and performs worse, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB ends up being one of AMD's worst releases of the last years and given the hype built, probably the most disappointing.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
